The Real Truth About What You Are Doing to your Skin and How to Fix It for A Beautiful, Healthy GlowBook - 2018
"Sensitive skin is one of the most buzzed-about topics in dermatology today. It can be painful, debilitating, and inconvenient. Astonishingly, many of the women and men who suffer from problem skin are unknowingly causing it by washing too frequently and using too many skincare and beauty products. In the name of beauty and anti-aging, we're slathering ourselves in creams and balms that actually can damage the skin they claim to protect. The miracle products we buy at department stores, specialty shops, and pharmacies have the potential to make us less attractive--and to prematurely age the skin. In Stop Washing, leading dermatologist Dr. Skotnicki explains that the best state for skin is the natural state. On its own the skin is better equipped to fight wrinkles, stave off aging and act as armor that protects the body from infection. Every time we slather, spread, hydrate, or soften the skin, we nudge the skin away from its healthiest natural condition. Skotnicki demystifies the claims of commonly used beauty products and offers a common-sense approach to cleansing the body and a natural skincare regime that will fight aging, preserve skin health, and enhance beauty. Stop Washing is a practical, essential guide to the best and worst ingredients we slather onto our bodies and how to get healthy glowing skin and look better than ever."--Provided by publisher.
